So what does Global Warming mean for the UK's weather?

Depending on the 'expert' and when they make their pronouncement it will mean warmer, drier, colder or wetter weather. Here's a few examples of what scientists know will happen... (my comments in bold)

1) Here is a link to a 1999 Science Daily article which explains that:

'The research, which appears in the June 3 issue of the British journal Nature, offers no predictions on what temperatures future winters will bring, but suggests a continuation of the current trend for three to four more decades.

If warming trends continue, said Drew Shindell, associate research scientist at Columbia's Center for Climate Systems Research and lead author of the report, northern regions of Europe and Asia and, to a lesser extent, North America, can expect winters that are both warmer and wetter, with increased rain and snow.'

2) The Independent in an article by Charles Onians told us that:
'snow is starting to disappear from our lives' and that 'Children just aren't going to know what snow is'.

So that's both more snow and less snow...

3) The Guardian in July 2006 eagerly reported that:
'Peering into the future is a tricky business, especially for something as volatile as weather and climate. But scientists know a lot about how events will unfold. They use giant computer programs, evolved from those that make weather forecasts, to work out how the atmosphere will react to the blanket of carbon dioxide we humans are steadily wrapping around the planet. As we do, and as more of the sun's heat is unable to escape, the air and the sea warm. But that takes time, which means that whatever we do, our climate destiny is fixed for the next few decades.... Here, we present a picture of what might happen in Britain over the next century if the world fails to take serious action, and global emissions continue to rise at about the same, or a slightly slower, rate. So what does it reveal? ... Rainfall will decline in the summer and the increased deluges in winter will struggle to replenish thirsty reservoirs because much of the water will run off the baked ground.

I wonder what these scientists would say Scientists to those of us who have noticed that in the UK rather than have know reduced summer rainfall and empty reservoirs, we have had wet summers in 2007, 2008, 2009 & 2010?

Let's be honest the 'science' is being used to scaremonger and advance the true 'warmist' agenda of control and taxation.
